No it not back in production, I think EVGA are clearing all 6800 Ultras in EVGA inventory.

Yup, and unlike ATi partners, nVidia partners will have no problems clearing out 6800 series video cards. All about marketing and brand recognition (i.e. eVGA).

Why on earth would anyone buy a 6800 Ultra when they can have a 7900GT at the same price?

Yeah, it's a beast, plus if you got pissed off at someone, just clock them upside the head with that thing...that should do the trick!

Well, the 7900GT isn't quite there yet($259) but the 7800GT is. So yeah, I don't see why anyone would buy one of these. Unless they have another one and want to go SLi.

Not a very practical card at all, but damn, thats a collectors item

That was the top of nVidia's line of amazing 6 series cards. I think the 6800s were deffinitely the single biggest leap in performance and features since the old voodoo days. When was the last time (before the 6 series) anyone released a card that more than doubled the performance of their previous top card while still releasing them at reasonable prices?

Im still contemplating whether I want to sell my 6800GT on ebay to make back some of my upgrade money, or if I should just keep it since its an amazing piece of hardware and probably one of the best anyone will ever be able to get for AGP.

It really is a great piece of hardware(Good enough for someone to uhm SUGARcoat it!) as a matter of fact my daughter has my EVga 6800 Ultra in her rig right now.granted she surfs the net and plays Counter Strike Source it still holds up well. Best video card for it's time.
